Klopp stands by Liverpool's failed Mane appeal

Klopp stands by Liverpool's failed Mane appeal

It was an incident that brought plenty of discussion, as Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher lead the arguments, but many agreed that referee John Moss made the right decision to give Mane red.

However, the FA has chosen not to reduce the length of the ban and insist that Mane's suspension for "serious foul play" will begin with immediate effect.

This is listed as one of seven offences worthy of a red card, and Liverpool will now have to accept doing without one of their most important players for three domestic matches.

By the end of it, Saturday's 5-0 scoreline looked a monumental defeat for Liverpool, and by any measure it wasn't a pleasant afternoon for the Reds when they visited Manchester City.

The Brazilian needed around eight minutes of treatment before he was taken off on a stretcher.

"We did it and, as I said after the game, it was a waste of time obviously".




Klopp told Sky Sports: "I don't think it's a red card, he didn't see him".

Maybe this latest picture of Ederson, three days after the high tackle went down, will change his mind.

Pep Guardiola will wait until Wednesday to decide whether Ederson plays against Feyenoord after the Man City goalkeeper returned to training wearing protective headgear following his clash with Liverpool's Sadio Mane.

"If you want to blame me for the decision then no problem", Klopp said when asked about his choice to leave Coutinho out of the squad on the weekend. "In the game everybody thought the goalkeeper was seriously injured - I'm not sure what happened but he was running around after the game so not as serious as everybody thought". Sadio feels very bad about it.

"Of course we can't neglect the performance after that - we have to keep it in mind - but we have another game midweek when we can prove ourselves again".
